|SUGGESTED USAGE: As a dietary supplement, take 1 Vcap 1 to 2 times daily, preferably with meals. Consider taking this product in combination with B-Complex Vitamins.
BENEFITS: Biotin is a water-soluble vitamin necessary for normal growth and body function. Biotin is a key regulatory element in gluconeogenesis, fatty acid synthesis, and in the metabolism of some amino acids. Alongside its role in energy production, Biotin has been shown to support healthy serum glucose levels that are already within the normal range. In addition, Biotin promotes normal immunity and plays a critical role in skin health.*

Biotin, also known as vitamin H or B7, is a water-soluble vitamin necessary for normal growth, as well as for healthy skin, hair, and nails.
Biotin is necessary for the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats, and amino acids (the building blocks of protein). It plays an important role in the Krebs Cycle (the process in which energy is released from food). Biotin assists various metabolic chemical exchanges, and aids in the transfer of carbon dioxide. Biotin may also be helpful for maintaining healthy blood sugar levels that are already within the normal range.*
Cautions and Interactions
Long-term anticonvulsant (anti-seizure) and antibiotic therapies may increase the need for biotin.
Large doses of the nutrient pantothenic acid have the potential to compete with biotin for intestinal and cellular uptake due to their similar structures. Very high (pharmacologic) doses of lipoic acid have been found to decrease the activity of biotin-dependent carboxylases in rats, but such an effect has not been demonstrated in humans.
